The growth of ShUEP has undergone several significant changes, it was originally called Shanghai electric energy academy, then it was renamed Shanghai electric energy industry academy and after some time it was recognized as Shanghai electric energy technical college. The current name, ShUEP, was authorized by the Ministry of Education for bachelor education in spring 1985. But only in 2006, ShUEP received permission to obtain a master’s degree. Moreover, this University has made a significant advance in obtaining a doctorate in 2018.
